Looking Ahead To The UEFA Champions League Round Of 16

The 2016-17 UEFA Champions League Round of 16 draw took place early Monday morning in Nyon, Switzerland and left us with some very entertaining match ups:

Thomas Meunier Scored The Best Goal Of The UCL So Far While No One Was Paying Attention

Most of you out in soccer land, we are willing to bet, watched Manchester City vs. Barcelona this afternoon. We do not begrudge you one bit for that, as it was a fun game.
